From the internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning author of Black Juice, Red Spikes and Tender Morsels - a new collection of evocative, moving and richly imagined stories.

Yellowcake brings together another ten short stories from this extraordinarily talented writer - each of them fiercely original and quietly heartbreaking.

'Lanagan is in a class of her own.' Weekend Australian

'The genius (not too strong a word) of Margo Lanagan is her ability to reach into darkness and return with something both different and powerfully convincing. It's astonishing enough to be introduced so abruptly to a writer this good, but even more extraordinary is her seemingly effortless mastery of the short story form, and what she proceeds to do with it.' LOCUS, USA.

'Lanagan asks us to look at the world differently to see its fullness.' Sydney Morning Herald

'With enormous skill, Lanagan disturbs as she entertains, stimulating our minds and playing havoc with our hearts.' Good Reading
